Speech Day 2021

“Alone there is so much to do, together there is so much we can do… Be positive and proud of the impact that you can have on the world. Young people are a powerful force for change – together we can make waves for future generations.”


A huge thank you to Sophie Daud, Chair of the Y7 (official youth engagement group for the G7 Leaders’ Summit), for sharing her inspiring and motivating words about the role and impact that young leaders can have in the world.

After a year of uncertainties and changes it was with great pleasure, and some relief, that we were able to welcome prize winners and Upper Sixth students, along with their parents, to celebrate another busy and successful year. Safely seated throughout the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre, guests enjoyed a selection of musical and drama interludes, as well as speeches from Chair of Governors Richard Thomas, Head Andy Johnson, Guest Speaker Sophie Daud and our departing Head Girl/Boy Team, Issac and Jenny.

For those unable to attend in person, the event was live streamed by the Truro School Tech Team into classrooms, and to parents and alumni across the world. Please scroll down to view the recording.

Congratulations to all of our prize winners.
